Abstract: It is difficult to imagine a set of standards by which Australian education could be considered a success. By and large, the young people emerging from our schools are equipped to meet neither their own needs nor those of society.
Things do not have to be this way. We are not so poor that we cannot afford the sort of education our predicament demands, nor are our human resources so scanty that we would be unable to staff an adequate school system if one were established.
